I booked through Living Social and Amy was very helpful when I called to make our reservation. The van picked us up at our hotel which was convenient. After that we went around town picking up the other customers but Greg made the pre-tour ride interesting with bits of growing up in New Orleans info. One would assume that this... More

Our driver Darren made this tour one to never forget. He hit many highlights of New Orleans: French Quarter, Congo Park, Lake Ponchartraine, cemetery, the Garden District, Warehouse district, and city park that included a stop at the Morning Call. Darren provided a lot of background history of the sights and sounds of New Orleans, he was very friendly, knowledgeable,... More

Booked this through Groupon and want given any impression it was an issue like some here. They were great to work with booking the tour (which was full our trip) and they were within the range of pickup time. Darren is not only funny but does a great job driving and talking and being a DJ to the NOLA music... More

I called to inquire if my boyfriend and I could make a reservation to take the city tour for the next day. The man on the phone was rude and said "I don't know." What do you mean you don't know? Then he says "can't you take a tour this afternoon?" I said no and he says "well, you are... More

Took the morning city tour with Darrin. It was a fantastic tour! Darrin was very informative with just the right amount of humor and music. We took a tour two years ago, and this was much better. He explained the history of the area and took the time to point out interesting places to visit and dine.

We took this 3 hour tour bus on a freezing day so we were happy we could do some touring and not be outside. The guide was Darren or Darrel..he was ok, fine. The tour gives a nice overview of the city and some interesting Katrina info. Not sure why we stop at a cemetary. I would recommend this.

We booked this tour on the phone with Amy using a discounted Groupon offer. Amy was wonderful to work with, answered all my questions and confirmed our reservation via email. She also offered to help with any other NOLA questions we might have. I took her up on her offer and sent her an email with several questions (recommendations for... More

We ABSOLUTELY LOVED this tour! The driver was so nice and very knowledgeable. We saw so many things that you wouldn't get to see on a walking tour like the garden district, french quarter, cemeteries, Katrina damage, ect. The bus was comfortable also. The driver would stop and let you get out to take pictures, and he would also stop... More

Had a great time exploring New Orleans. Darren was our tour guide and showed us all of the highlights we were hoping to see during our time in the city. He was funny and shared some of his personal experiences and great history about New Orleans. Definitely would recommend this tour!!

Purchased through Living Social, emailed company to make reservation, Amy responded promptly with the information, so far so good. The email we received with instructions for pick up stated, "pick up between 1:30 and 2:00)" so we planned accordingly to be at the designated area at 1:30. At 1:25 we received a called from the rudest person we have interacted... More
